    Waitress Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Coco's Bakery.

    Interview

    I walked in the door and asked if they were hiring (which they were). The person who greeted me seemed tired and annoyed (which was characteristic of almost everyone who worked there) but she got the manager for me either way. The manager sat me down and asked the routine questions such as why I wanted to work there and what I had to offer. Maybe 15-20 minutes later the manager basically hired me on the spot regardless of the fact that I had no prior work experience. I was young and really enthusiastic which was helpful I think.

    Regional Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Coco's Bakery (San Diego, CA) in October 2008.

    Interview

    I was reffered to the VP of the company who pretty much blew me off and set me up with an interview with a current GM. This was the coming to life of a cliche I have always heard. Get him talking and he will carryon about himself and it will be a great interview...for him! I was floored and in fact felt almost disrespected that I had to go through this guy to get a position. I can tell you that I am a pretty humble guy however I had never been in such a situation. I consulted with a few associates in that company who told me that as much as they would love to have me as a their RD it was known to be a dead man walking position. They set me up with another GM interview which led to more of the same. I am a relatively young GM and both of these characters almost triple my age. that may have some weight on their attitudes throughout the interview but they did offer the position anyway. I did a bit more research and felt that I may be able to bring some excitement to a pretty beatrdown region and group of managers. Before accepting I did let my employer know that I had been offered the position which resulted in a significant pay increase. I chose to stay put as I had already proven myself and that proved a great decission!

    Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Coco's Bakery in April 2011.

    Interview

    I have access to a military base and there is a Coco's Bakery there. I stopped by the bakery to see if they were hiring. I filled out an application and briefly spoke with the assistant manager. It was just a general interview. I briefly outlined my employment history. I also took the time to give examples of the cross-over skills, such as teaching and communicating, and how they apply to the food service industry. The manager struck me as a very kind person. The Coco's was well maintained. I am waiting to hear back from them.
